Once Upon a Time in Wonderland Season 2: Will ABC Show Be Canceled or Renewed?

March 20, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

Once Upon a Time in Wonderland season 1 is close to wrapping up, with just three episodes left including the one on March 20. So is there going to be a season 2?

The series started off fairly strong with 5.8 million viewers and 1.7 in the 18-49 demographic, but quickly dropped and was at 3.1 and 0.8 as of episode 10.

ABC President Paul Lee admitted earlier this year that he should’ve used the show as a bridge between the first and second half of Once Upon a Time season 2, but wanted to play “offensive.” He wanted to air the show on Sundays at midseason but instead the show is on Thursday nights.

“I should’ve done that,” he said, reported TVLine. “In retrospect, I think it would’ve done better there and I should’ve stuck with the earlier idea. I totally take responsibility for that.” 

The spin-off show from Once Upon a Time follows Alice in the same universe as Once Upon a Time, and is similar with many adaptations of tales.

Based on viewing numbers so far, Zap2It predicts that Once Upon a Time in Wonderland is more likely to be canceled than renewed by May 2014.
